Redding Poem 2
"Sacramento River WordScape" 

These descendent waters swim like mad lagoon fish, 
Heading decidedly south with a fiery mindless turn,
Their cool liquid urgencies reaching to all sides enticing
The bosomy turning earth and its pectoral indecencies,
With an impotent power unknown...Read More

In God's Arms
the slowness of breath
in longest days,
protects and restores;
heart subtly seeks,
in beautiful ways.

alas dying leaf
signalling change,
reminds in colors;
texture of old,
my limited range

the sureness of light
in bathing love,
reassembles hope;
sepia dreams pass,
in arms from Above....Read More

The Grand Circus of Life
The Grand Circus Of Life
-Walter Rossman

Welcome to the greatest show
no cords, no nets below
your life is at stake
don't make it a mistake
below the tightrope, failure stares
don't stumble, yet nobody cares
about you in this circus
to succeed, don't be nervous
don't fail, rely...Read More

brown petal
one petal slightly browned
on a flower that wouldn’t die
she said it would
she knew it could
she was certain it should
but I
in my staunch stubborn sureness
wouldn’t believe her
I said
  "love lasts forever"
she replied

Premium Member Wounded Passions
Starting this unSabbath day
unusually seduced by full-color compassion,
with some competing-for-time distractions
in more sadly usual role recessions,
raises weak-day wellness questions
with healthy answering co-passion,
responsive responses more resiliently weekend resonations
than pathological ego-manic fear emanations
about my immediate physical future re-creations
and anger about our collective...Read More

Knox'd Out
It was early, 
The solemn, silent sunrise wrought its
Rays across the untamed land like a
Shorn-clad Delilah.
Dew glistened the foliage
Like undefiled razer blades nestled
Within a mortar's payload.

Morning haze,
Suggestively seductive in its 
Sureness of the divine destiny
Lingered, a dwelling
Companion of aimless hope,
Brightly...Read More

Mr Not-Fixit
There are people who fix things
And those who won’t try
But strangely, a third type exists –
The ones who believe they
Can fix things, though why
Is unclear, yet their sureness persists.

They’ll attempt, with their tool kit,
All kinds of repairs
Though they rarely will...Read More

My time may be running out

When my work here is finished I will hand in my skin and my bones.

Sheltering Myself From Unhappy Thoughts
Sheltering myself from unhappy thoughts,
is recalling those serene days on deserted shores...
picking up empty shells discolored and broken,
they mean squalor to the vagrant who has awoken!

Instantly I'm overtaken by the somber winter's blues,
it's the sureness of the February sky that...Read More

Wedding Day
My in-laws came like they were forced;
My grandma broke her wrist.
My pink bouquet my mother sourced,
Objections (mine) dismissed.

My husband’s suit was corduroy
And he refused a tie
But just his presence brought me joy;
On that I could rely.

The rabbi said the blessings...Read More

THE EAGLE

From sheer Jurassic precipice he soared
Surveyed the land for bounty it might afford

Across the broad flat valley’s rich domain
With viewpoint high, low altitude disdain

In languid circling track approaching nigh
The eagle now came level eye with eye

He seemed to nod...Read More

At her door
I watch her ride into the sunset
A knowing smile spread across her face
As if in amusement
Of the grant of a future tryst.

I look around me.
Lying in blood splattered gravel,
Wounds tug at my skin
and my spirit 
begging for a release eternal.
Yet...Read More

Perhaps, Peradventure
"Perhaps.
"Peradventure."
But uncertainty overshadows sureness,
And uncertainty transforms into a furnace,
And the furnace swallows you completely
While you scream..and while you writhe...weakly.
Are you demoralized?
Are you dehumanized?
Has the fire changed you?
Are you dead, or made new?
"Perhaps.
"Peradventure."
What a great mystery you are, a phantom.
Why did...Read More

raindrops
When one falls in love it’s similar to raindrops
Uncontrollable, everywhere splattering, everyone
Know’s you’ve fallen due to the songs you sing
Due to the rain that sings as each crashes against sureness
A musical melody of notes as vast as these rain drops…selah

Light On the Devil's Chord - Day 30
A whirl, a gust, and a thunderous boom commenced,
Heartened by the latter soreness of silent night,
Shackled through the chill blows above,
A tempest, a storm,
Threshing the world,
Shaking the Prison of Plot,

The waters of the Holy Spirit roared,
And the Great Dragon shrieked...Read More

her
Her I wanted more than anything

Her image clear and fuzzy in my head

Her sensational eyes and beaming gaze

Her love for books and stories of another.

 

Especially at night she was so clear

I was sure

When I went out she’d be bumping...Read More

I am strong

You may simply disregard me
with your arrogant throng
You may treat me with disrespect

Love's in the Air
There's a certain feeling
love fills the air
you feel it deep inside
emotionally it's quite rare

A certain sureness inside you
this feeling from across the room
that one feels as you do
could be your future groom

There's atmosphere all around
such emotion you can touch
it soothes...Read More
